Mock Draft time!

2% of amateur players who get drafted actually make it to the Major Leagues. So in that vein, Minor League Ball has posted an updated 1st round mock draft.

Here is the latest projected pick for the Astros in June:
21. Houston - Wil Myers, C, Wesleyan Christian Academy
Yes, I know the Astros took a catcher in the first round last year. However, Myers' ability to stick at catcher is a little questionable, and his athleticism and bat make him the obvious option here.
